Re: Using a unidirectional electric windlass

I dont know the Lewmar winch but in general - release the gypsy and let the anchor fall under gravity. So dont stress over this one.

Allow the anchor to hang over the bow roller a bit so that when you are ready, you can just drop it.

I have a Muir winch winch which the up switch corroded up a lovely creek some 2 years ago. I transferred the 'down' connection to the up and as such have a 'unideirectional' winch like you! I will eventually fix it.

SOmeone with the exact same winch will have the best answer shortly.

Ask any question you need - its a big forum.

Enjoy the new boat.
